Quartzite is a hard, non-foliated metamorphic rock. Quartzite is all natural. It consists of 90 to 99 percent quartz grains bound by the mineral silica. It is a natural stone that appeals to the Eco-conscious because it’s made by nature and contains only naturally occurring components. It’s formed beneath the earth’s surface when quartz-rich sandstone is altered through high pressure and temperature, then mined and cut into slabs.

Quartzite comes primarily in shades of white or gray, though iron oxide in the stone can lend a pink or red hue. It’s also limited to the pattern created through natural formation—a veined finish that resembles granite or marble and bears visual inconsistencies from one end of the slab to the other.
